I already reported this on the GitHub issue tracker as issue #475 but I'm not sure if I was supposed to write it here instead. Feel free to disregard this issue if it will be handled on the GitHub tracker instead.
The kite-tools-1.1.0-binary.jar will fail in Mac OS X since the HFS+ filesystem is case-insensitive and the jar contains META-INF/LICENSE and META-INF/license. The HFS+ by default doesn't not allow two filenames that only differ in case, it's case preserving but case insensitive.
You can verify that the JAR indeed contains a license and LICENSE with the command jar tvf kite-tools-1.1.0-binary.jar |grep -i license
This filename clash / conflict renders it unusable since when Hadoop tries to unpack the JAR will throw and IOException: Mkdirs failed to create <tmpdir>.../hadoop-unjar/.../META-INF/license:
Is it possible to change the JAR build process to rename the META-INF/license dir to META-INF/licenses?Googling around I found the Maven [ApacheLicenseResourceTransformer])(https://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-shade-plugin/examples/resource-transformers.html#ApacheLicenseResourceTransformer) may solve the problem.
Alternatively, maybe move or rename the META-INF/LICENSE (Jackson JSON processor license) so it does not conflict with the dir META-INF/license/
Are any of these alternatives possible?, otherwise kite-dataset cannot be used (as far as I understand) on Mac OS X.
